is not on the obama administration's side either. no prior administration, republican or democrat, has ever attempted to waive the work requirements in the 16 years between the law's enactment and the july, 2012, information memorandum. following the july, 2012, action, the government accountability office looked into this and, quote, did not find any evidence that h.h.s. stated it has authority to issue waivers related to tanf work requirements, end quote. in short, no administration attempted to waive the work requirements because they knew it was illegal to do so. and finally, if we need more evidence that despite their promises to the contrary, the administration's policy would weaken the work requirement, we need look no further than the nonpartisan congressional budget office. this states $61 million over 10 years, because c.b.o. recognizes the administration's waivers will allow some states that will otherwise pay penalties failing to meet the work requirement. in addition to -- the legislation before us extends the tanf program's authorization at current funding levels through the remainder o
here. look at the last four years. the obama administration has put in place higher taxes and massive amounts of debt and burdensome regulations that make it more expensive for job creators to create jobs and have resulted in sluggish economic growth. for the past four years, 0.8% growth is what we have seen under this administration. you would hope that the democrats would be preparing the budget and looking at policies that will grow the economy. what we're hearing is that it will be more of the same. we are talking about trillion dollar tax increase and more spending and nothing to save social security and medicare by reforming those programs in a way that will align them with the future demographics of this country. it is more of the same policies with regards to their budget. we think there is a better way. we will look for opportunities to offer amendments that will point that out. bottom line, the democrat budget as we know it today is going to hurt jobs, the economy, and make it difficult for job creators to get americans back to work. that should be the fundamental question w
-nighter. the droid razr maxx hd by motorola. droid-endurance. droid-powerful. >> the obama administration has just outdone itself. wait until you see the forms for obamacare, the one they expect you to fill out. washington examiner political correspondent byron york joins us. byron, tell me what do we have here? >> if you thought obamacare was simple you have another think coming. >> greta: dilutional. >> it's for coverage to be covered under the exchange that may be formed in your state or to actually receive subsidies because obamacare provides subsidies for millions and millions of people under this system. what i think most people don't understand, the form is kind of like filling out another tax return. and i think what most people may not understand is that the irs, the internal revenue service is the thing that makes the system work. everybody is going to have to prove to the irs that they have health insurance and it's health insurance that qualifies under the department of health and human services standards and you'll do that if you have health insurance on the job and maybe get somethin
and the obama administration are andrew jackson. we have been through this before. the democrats tripled the budget. it is not true that it was reagan's tax cuts that led to the deficit. the problem was for every additional dollar that came in to the internal revenue service, the democrats were spending another $3. then reagan's knuckle head of a vice president, the first george bush, unable to learn from the first kick of a mule, made the exact same deal with democrats. he raised taxes in exchange for promised cuts in spending. hikell gladly take a tax today for a cut in spending on tuesday." once again, democrats raised spending. it would be like journalists going to tribal chiefs circa 1890 and saying sarcastically, "are you telling me you would not give of 1 acre of land for a guaranteed promise of 10 acres of land?" and then 10 years later, "we are going to be needing nebraska and south dakota, too." obama claims he wants to keep taxes low for the middle class. let me tell you for the 400 people still left in the middle class, they could not be happier. obama also said he had to shu
teacher furloughs to longer airport lines to criminal its running free, the obama administration has lied to the american people. they have even closed the white house for public tours. remarkably, the many false claims from the white house had even prompted some in the mainstream media to push back. one of the reasons why the white house thought it could get away with it is because the media has always been in their back pocket. you just have to look at all the obama scandals, with the latest being the tragedy where four brave americans died -- were murdered in benghazi, to see the media's complacency. the obama administration has not been forthcoming with information on benghazi, and congress has failed in its oversight responsibilities. citizens united recently launched a campaign calling on members of congress to create a select committee to investigate fully the benghazi tragedy. it has been over 30 years since jimmy carter's presidency that a united states ambassador has been killed overseas. now six months after benghazi, there are more questions than answers. it is vitally importa
. but by then the philosophy of the obama administration is that it's going to be too late. so now is the opportunity that we are going to be hearing from our panelists and each of us will present a little bit of a different perspective on the panel about what happened that night and then i'll have some q&a interaction with them and we'll see if even if we cannot answer the questions for you, perhaps we can help people to understand what are the right questions so that some day wlrks it be a presidential candidate or a cnn moderator or senators having dinner with the president, maybe somebody can come up with the right questions to ask about benghazi and then hope and pray that some day we will get the proper answers. let me turn the time over to our panelists to let them make their remarks. roger. >> thank you very much congressman. please hold your applause. thank you very much. i have somebody paying attention up front. let me begin by making a very stark appraisal by what we learned from benghazi. and i just ask you to remember the famous commercials during the 2008 campaign about the 3:00 a.m. phone cal
this thing here now with this obama administration where they treat our enemies with much more concern than they do our friends. >> sean: here we have sequester weekend and he gave morsi 250 million taxpayer dollars and yet, he's closing down the white house. let me ask you about the other three situations i brought up. north korea, russia and china. these are significant. there seems to be willingness to take liberties with this president. >> sean, they're pushing a president they think is a-- is weak. >> sean: is a weak president. >> i hate to say that. >> sean: isn't he weak because he hasn't responded, has he? >> sure, the idea of leading from behind says okay, you want to lead from behind we're going to push you as far as we can push you until we get some kind of reaction and get as much advantage as we can. this whole idea of basically destroying our navy is idiotic when you consider that in china, a great debate is going on as to how big their navy should be. because they want to control the pacific, or some of them do. china, after all, is a dynamic society. there are people in chin
on a politically charged bill that would block the obama administration from waving any work requirements to receive welfare. the house republicans accuse the president of trying to gut the work requirement that was passed back in 1996. the white house says that requirement creates bureaucratic hurdles for states in placing welfare recipients. to the american southwest new concerns over securing our southern border there as spending changes in washington are expected to reduce border patrolman power. meanwhile there is new attention on the technology that will be put on the front lines there. william la jeunesse has seen it firsthand at the border security expo in phoenix, arizona. william, good morning, there. >> reporter: bill, as you know a lot of the border is very rugged, it's mountains, canyons, of course the rio grand. you cannot build a physical fence there. the border patrol relies on a series of ground sensors to detect people coming in but also long-range cameras like this one that can see day and in it to tell them where illegals are and where they are going. >> the product is
on a sustainable course. it puts an end to the obama administration tosses roadblock to energy development and pave the way for projects like my colleague just mentioned, the keystone pipeline, which will generate more than 130,000 jobs, boost our economy, and bring down energy costs. the budget also promotes economic growth, job creation, supports research and development in the energy sector, and moves america to a more energy independent state. it expands oil and gas development, which could generate a half a million new jobs and $14.40 trillion in increased economic and art -- activity. delayingting or domestic energy exploration, the obama administration has driven jobs overseas. in this budget, the house republicans in the subsidies, -- support for this budget translates into a response will plan to grow our economy and create jobs. i yield back my time. >> i would like to yield two minutes to the gentleman from indiana. >> thank you. what we are doing here today, people in america are hurting. to many parents have come hold -- come home and told their children they do not have a job. washing
sequestration gave the obama administration a political reason to release deportable aliens. surely otherle budgetary considerations could have come first such as cutting conferences or detailees or travel. releasing illegal immigrants ves them little incentive to report themselves. many will become fugitives. further more, the director has indicated that i.c.e. has had to reapprehend four out of the 10 of the illegal immigrant for more severe crimes. to make matters worse, many of these individuals released lack the money, family, support, and the ability to get a job. not just because they are present in violation of the law but because they have a criminal record. this is a ultimately, the nonsensical action demonstrates the inability and a lack of desire on behalf of the administration to enforce the law, even against illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes. to make matters worse, they undermine the goodwill necessary to develop a common sense, step- by-step approach to improving our immigration laws. pleasureime, it is my to recognize the ranking member of the committee, the gen
] and what have we seen from the obama administration? the obama administration is sending the worst signal to the ayatollahs, at a most critical time. we talk, they enrich. they don't take us seriously. and this leading from behind strategy, it isn't working. think about the message that we are sending. in iraq, the president ignores the advice of his commanders, his own commanders, and rushed to the exit. and what was the result? al qaeda is making a comeback in iraq. and iran has become an important player in iraq. in syria, we sat on the sidelines while over 70,000 syrians were slaughtered. seeding our policy to the vetoes of the russians and the chinese and the united nations to a bunch of united nations bureaucrats. [booing] and in afghanistan, the president has undercut his commanders time and time again. in libya, the administration again lead from behind, and never took steps to secure gadhafi's weapons stash. and do you know where those weapons are now? they are in the hands of islamic radicals in mali, egypt, and syria, used by terrorists to harm us and our allies. and this admin
week, and what a better time for it this year because the obama administration, president obama, has a brand-new nominee to head the environmental protection agency, and that agency is in desperate need of sunshine and transparency. and so in the midst of sunshine week, i wanted to talk about these very, very serious issues. first of all, let's go back a little bit. the first day president obama took office in 2009, the white house web site declared that his administration would become -- quote -- "the most open and transparent in history." close quote. and the president issued high-profile orders pledging -- quote -- "a new era" and -- quote -- "an unprecedented level of openness" across the federal government. now those are great goals and great aspirations. unfortunately, the record, particularly as i said, at the e.p.a., is a whole lot different. president obama's e.p.a. has earned a reputation for ignoring congressional information requests, for ignoring and frustrating foia, freedom of information act, requests. for hiding e-mails, completely contrary to e.p.a. policy. and for
prosperity of their own families and of our own nation. under the obama administration, u.s. public debt is a percent -- as a percentage of g.d.p. is over 70% and growing. we've seen european nations, there appears to be a tipping point on the debt to g.d.p. ratio. and our current rate, we're nearing dangerous territory. the reverse currency status of the dollar and our rank among world economies will only carry us for so long. so what affect does this level of debt have on the economy and its citizens when things go south? all you have to do is look around like -- at countries like cyprus, spain, greece. in the case of greece you'll see a depressed environment where the unemployment rate is over 26%, severe austerity cuts and overhauls of gutted worker benefits, safety net programs, harming seniors and the country's poorest populous, taxes on families an businesses have increased at a sharp rate and violent social unrest has become common place. most recently we've seen a proposal to bail out cyprus banks that could raid the savings account of its own population. these are the realities
transparent administration ever. barack obama, you lie. [applause] there is a direct correlation between the senate stubbornly refusing to pass the budget and the senate selfishly agreeing to go ahead and spend our children's and grandchildren's money. it is time to get outraged about this. never before have our challenges been so big and our leaders so small. when we were here last year the words on everyone's lips and the wish in your heart was for barack to pack up and bubble wrap the nobel and high tops and head back to chicago. the election came and went but the campaign never stopped. our country is desperate for leadership we get instead a permanent campaign. leaders take risks for the good of our country. leaders reached across political differences. campaigners double down on those differences. leaders seek to bring americans together to confront our challenges. campaigners seek to divide and to conquer and to orchestrate crisis after crisis after crisis to exploit. mr. president, we admit it. you won. accept it. now step away from the teleprompter and do your job. [cheers and a

people who don't like the obama administration's use of drone on the right not because they're worried about collateral damage, because quite frankly, they shoulder brush those ideas. it's because they think we need to be there on foot and own that land, which brings me to the drum beat, the reason i wanted to take her call specifically, and it just was lucky that she was kind of in cue as far as how long she'd been on line was that we're hearing the same kind of drum beat around syria right now. i think it's reuters putting up this thing. jacki: on senator graham and mccain shockingly. hal: exactly. [ laughter ] jacki: who want to go to war against everybody. hal: there's been a charge by the syrian government that rebels have been employing nuclear weapons and they've been floating this as a false flaggish kind of thing our soldiers are getting gaged by the rebels. jacki: i thought it was the other way around. hal: our concern is that hasaad has them and is going to use them. they are saying the rebels themselves supported by the u.s. and others are using chemical weapons on governme
. a lot of us, including myself have faulted this administration and this president for not doing more about -- not even trying to do anything about gun safety during the first four years of the obama administration. but at least, after newtown, after newtown, the president i mean, he went after tucson after gabby giffords, gave a great speech. did nothing. after newtown, he went up there, that had -- that shook up the entire nation and the president got his resolve and he came out and he said, you know we've got a lot of things we ought to do in this area of gun safety to protect our children, which is our number 1 responsibility. we have to talk about closing those loopholes and background checks and making sure that every gun purchase is accompanied by criminal background checks. we have to do something about these straw purchases and make that a more serious crime and eliminate them if we can. we have to do something about these high-capacity magazines. we have got to do something about these assault weapons. i mean, so it's not just one measure. it's
and the obama administration, together to do something bold like the simpson- bowles commission, this will continue. domestic discretionary accounts are being squeezed. entitlements are rising. you make a powerful case against sequestration on friday, we received a reprogramming a request from the eternal -- attorney general moving funds, including fbi funds to the bureau of prisons. we are going to approve that. you have had one prison guard killed. you had another commit suicide i think because of the death. how are you planning to function at reduced funding levels for this year? >> we are cutting back across the board. we have a hiring freeze. by the end of this fiscal year, we will have 2200 opened vacant positions. we delayed i.t. upgrades, which are expensive, but tremendously important. that includes putting off, picking up technology that would assist us in detecting cyber attacks. we reduced or eliminated operational training and travel across the board. that is in an effort to make certain that we do everything we can to ensure that we minimize any impact of furloughs
. we're talking about afghanistan but how do you think history is going to judge the obama administration's decision not to intervene in any significant military fashion in syria? 70,000 dead as you know and several million refugees. >> i think it's way too early how to predict how history is going to judge whether our policy is right. it's not too early to know how history will judge assad. that's easy. but in terms of whether or not we have proceeded in a more deliberate way than some would want us to, and probably a little more than i would want us to if you want to get into that, nonetheless the goal here is to make sure that what happens after assad is, is stable, is diverse, is not chaotic. that the right people are the ones that take over when assad goes. and that's, that's a matter of putting in place, if possible, a kind of an interim political coalition, which will have broad support inside of syria, which will not see a long period of retribution and violence following the fall of assad which will happen. and putting that in place to the extent that's possible is
of immigration reform, the current debate, is employers will be held accountable. the obama administration had actually been enforcing the immigration laws, has been directorate number of audits and still the workplace audits as well. and holding employers accountable more than any previous administration. the legislation -- in order for it to function, there have to be take components. people need to be brought out of the shadows and allowed to apply for earned his citizenship and secondly, employers need to be held accountable, particularly from labor law violations. if employers know they can hire and exploit workers then get away with that, they will continue to do so even after we have immigration reform. labor law protection as a major component of enforcement of the laws is an extremely important deterrent to future unlawful immigration. host: story from politico earlier this month. senate stop on lower skilled workers. -- stuck on low-skilled workers. talk about this effort. guest: the issue of any future immigrants who come on employment-based visas is but that the fault line. chamber
drill. the interceptors were originally proposed by the bush administration, but president obama stopped their deployment. allen west outraged that the reversal means millions of taxpayer dollars will be wasted. >> right now we see ourselves trying to play catch-up to the tune of some, i believe, about 240, $250 million to get those first response deterrent factors back up to the west coast. >> at a time we have to borrow that money from china who are friends with north korea so we can defend ourselves against north korea. that's schizophrenic. >> alisyn: the white house defends this as logical timing. >>> they saved a child drowning in a river. now the two people, the heros who went in after that little boy are missing. the six-year-old fell into the river inned south dakota. witnesses say a man and woman jumped in and got caught. several people tried to help, including this man. >> tried to pull them. we had them. there was three of us that had them. he had a kid. he had the kid with him. he just slipped. >> alisyn: the foam from the waterfall apparently making it incredibly difficult
